NBC News reported that John Conyers III was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in February in Los Angeles. Yesterday as his father resigned from Congress Rep. John Conyers endorsed his eldest son to take his seat

John Conyers III, who his father endorsed for his Congressional seat as he departed, 'body slammed [his girlfriend] on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her, ' the police report said.

Conyers III is credited with writing a handful of articles for the Huffington Post with a bio that says he spends time between Detroit and Los Angeles. A district attorney's charge evaluation sheet obtained by Local 4 shows John Conyers III was involved in a violent domestic dispute with his live-in girlfriend. They acknowledged a small stab wound on her bicep, said they couldn't prove in court that the would was intentionally inflicted.

The girlfriend added that when she attempted to call the police, Conyers took her phone and "chased" her to the kitchen.

A report from the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said that neither Conyers nor his girlfriend have criminal histories or reported domestic violence incidents. The alleged victim was not named in the prosecutors' document.

She told officers he took the knife from her, swung it at her and cut her arm.

Both of them called 911 to complain about the other.

Conyers, the longest serving member of Congress, has denied allegations that he settled a 2015 sexual-harassment complaint with a former staffer who claimed she was sacked after rebuffing his advances.

The former was taken into custody and released on the same day.

At 27 years old, John Conyers III has been thrust into the spotlight by his father, whom he defended vehemently amid sexual harassment allegations.

"I have a great family here and especially in my oldest boy, John Conyers III, who, incidentally, I endorse to replace me in my seat in Congress", the disgraced politician said. Ian Conyers, whose grandfather is Rep. Conyers' brother, has already announced his plans to run for the seat. He endorsed his eldest son following the announcement of his own retirement.

Conyers' III Facebook says he attended New York University and Morehouse College in Atlanta and identifies him as managing partner at EIA Alpha Partners Fund Management, based in Detroit.

His endorsement cast a bright spotlight on John Conyers III, and some alleged violence and driving issues have come to light.

News broke the story Wednesday, reporting that while Conyers III was arrested, he was not prosecuted.
